As someone who easily gets caught up in research & over-analyzing how to do new things, I need to hear this every other day.

if information was the answer then we’d all be billionaires with perfect abs. So really you, yeah you listening to this, you need to shut that shit off, put your blinders on, get out the door and start running. [src]
